Jesus Reflection Essay After learning more about the details of Jesus’ life, he has become a role model to me. There are three main aspects of Jesus’ life, which stand out to me; they are Jesus’ teachings, Jesus’ death and resurrection, and the miracles of Jesus. These three aspects of Jesus’ life apply to different personal experiences in my life and the degree that I am studying to achieve at GCU. Jesus’ teachings apply to my major at GCU since I am studying to graduate with a degree for teaching elementary and special education. Jesus is the ideal role model for a teacher because he was excellent at spreading the word of God.

In my opinion, todays’ culture and society lacks forgiveness. If todays generation could become more connected to Jesus. They may learn to live a life according to the ways of Jesus. Before Jesus had died his friends were betraying him. Although he knew what was going on he did not want to punish them or treat them poorly, it seemed he felt sorry for them. He wanted them to realize their wrong doings.
In Luke 23:34 Jesus says, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” For Jesus to pray for forgiveness on his deathbed for the people he cared about is the most selfless act that anyone could ever commit. When it comes to my personal life, I have a hard time overcoming the betrayal of friends. In my life I…
